We have been told that word order doesn't matter as much in Latin as it does in English. Yet my word order-- multi oratores in templo sunt -- was rejected. Can someone explain to me when word order makes a difference, and why?

I don't think there is anything wrong with that word order.

It is likely that it is just not yet an accepted answer (many likely get missed just due to the freer word order). I would suggest reporting that solution should it not be accepted the next time you get this (if it is still not accepted, just ensure everything in your answer is correct when you report it).
